In a land that never melts, high in the Canadian Arctic lies an Arctic Cordillera where peaks of the Norse Gods; Mt Thor, Mt Odin and Mt Asgard tower over a frozen Nanuvut tundra. It is here where Australian photographer Mark Watson claims he feels most alive.
For many years Watson’s world was that of adrenalin & action sport but a decade of photographing everything from motorsport to big wave surfing awoke a spirit for a new challenge… something rawer.
This short behind the scenes film was captured while on expedition with the AIP group. I touch on the drive behind Watson’s imagery and his search for something purer and more challenging than that of fast paced action.
It’s a journey of a simple walk in a park. It just so happens it is one of mother nature’s most majestic National Park’s and the temperature outside Watson’s tent is well below -20 degrees Celsius
